I have created a little supplement to help others help their students to self monitor their learning process. As we all know, learning HOW to learn is very important. The interesting thing about this FREEBIE is that there is an activity for students to be self aware of times when they actually are not interested in the lesson being taught. (WHAT? MY LESSONS AREN'T RIVETING TO EVERYONE???) Let's face it, we are not always interested in every meeting topic or pro-d that we go to either.
The key is to identify WHY? (The topic is boring, I'm confused and don't really understand...etc). Students self evaluate the topics in school that interest them or where they feel "comfortable" and how they feel they learn best for each subject area. This is a great way for teachers to promote self-directed learning and teach specifically to address these learning needs. You can check it out here:
For those of you going back to school tomorrow, I wish you a great first week back!
